As I mentioned in my post over on The Daily Varnish Extra about Julep‘s October box, I was thrilled when they offered a Maven’s Choice box as an alternative to the boxes with crackles. Truthfully, I can’t imagine why anyone would choose a box with crackle in it, but to each her own (with a friendly reminder that it is not 2010).
The polish I was most excited to try was Lisa from the Boho Glam box. It’s described as a warm pebble grey cream. Spot on, Julep. This light grey creme has subtle yellow undertones – finally a flattering light grey (for me!) I went out to dinner with friends on Sunday evening and got several compliments!
The formula is great – which is a huge strength for Julep. The polish applied smoothly and evenly to an opaque finish after two coats. After such a good experience with Lisa, I’m excited to try out the other two polishes: Keira and Eloise.

Julep has made a few great changes over the last few months. First, they added a plastic wrapping around the bottle – much appreciated. It drives me crazy when people test a polish in the store then just put it back. Second, it seems they’ve added the Style name to the bottom of each bottle – love it! I switch styles around quite often so it’s both interesting and helpful.
